MUSQUIN FINISHES SECOND OVERALL AT SPRING CREEK NATIONAL
MILLVILLE, Minnesota – Red Bull KTM Factory rider Marvin Musquin finished 2nd overall in the 250MX class at the eighth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series held at Spring Creek MX Park.
Marvin Musquin got out to a top ten start in the first moto and was sitting in 5th place by the second lap. He passed Justin Bogle on the next lap to take over 4th position and soon after began a battle with Dean Wilson for a podium spot. The two riders’ swapped positions a few times with Musquin making the pass stick around the halfway point. Once Musquin moved into 3rd he began to pull away and close the gap on the 2nd place ride. He eventually caught Christophe Pourcel with three laps remaining and made a pass for the position through the sand whoops. Musquin crossed the finish moments later to take 2nd for the moto.
In moto two, Musquin earned a 7th place start off the line. On his KTM 250 SX-F he remained in 7th or the first few laps before breaking into the top five. By the sixth lap he had moved into 4th place. He remained in that position through the end of the race just shy of another podium position. His 2-4 results earned him 2nd overall for the day and helped him move his position forward in the championship standings.
“I’m very excited to land on the podium again,” stated Musquin. “The track was really fun today and I am also glad to be back in the top five in the overall point standings.”
